Information about Tent Sizes

We have placed a limit on the number on very large tent pitches we allocate.

This is because an extremely large area of the camping pitch is permanently covered by canvas and combined with their fixed groundsheets damages most of the grass on a pitch making it unusable for future bookings. Also on adjacent pitches / customers are often left feeling crowded out by the size and profusion of guy ropes which often stray over pitch boundaries.

This applies to tents generally over 4.5mtrs wide and in particular the very large POD style of dome tent, see image below.

If you wish to bring a very large pod dome tent or suspect you have an excessively large tent please check pitch availability via the on-line enquiry form and we will gladly have a look at availability for you.


Camping prices start from £8 pppn. Please see our Tariff  page for more information
